BROOKVILLE, JEFFERSON COUNTY---Karin Hetrick, 42, was arrested at her home Thursday and faces several criminal charges related to a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female student.

Statements made to police by Hetrick and the student said that there had been sexual contact between them on a daily basis for the past few months. Some if the incidences occured in Hetrick's home or car, but most occured at Brookville Area High School in Hetrick's classroom.

The Brookville Area School District superintendent said Hetrick has resigned from her position at the school.

Hetrick now faces 80 counts of indecent assault, 10 counts of indecent exposure, 80 counts of corruption of a minor, 20 counts of aggrevated indecent assault, and 94 counts of unlawful contact with a minor. The student provided police with a flash drive containing nude pictures that Hetrick had sent to her, which added 14 counts of obscene and other sexual materials to the list of charges.

Hetrick admitted to police that the relationship began back in November, with texting back and forth, and became sexual two or three months ago.

Police said the relationship was discovered by the student's mother who contacted state police in Clarion. State police then informed the Brookville Police Department of the alleged sexual assault.

Police said Hetrick has been admitted to a hospital, but won't comment on the cause. She will be arraigned in district court upon her release from the hospital.

Last year a teacher was caught in the back seat around midnight with an 11th grade female student. Both were still clothed when the local police checked on them. He wasn't charged and the school didn't want to face the legal problems that a situation like so they asked him to leave which he did with no mention of the incident on his record.

Speaking of the Curwensville incident, can someone give a comprehensive account of what happened. I can't seem to get a straight answer from anyone in Curwensville!

A female teacher that was hired in place of a teacher that had just retired got into a relationship with an 11th grade male student. She was allowing the student and his friends to do their homework in her class, sit in her class when they had study hall, and various other times. Noone knew what was going on for months until the students mother found out, and went to the School board. She threatened to press charges against the teacher if the school didn't have her fired, so she was let go. It will probably never be brought up in headlines because anything that ever goes wrong at that school never does. They always cover everything up with "NO COMMENT"

why is it that these district cover up the dirty laundry? the administration is responsible for the safety of the entire student body. some of the teachers act as if they would rather be friends with their students, instead of their mentors. i recently heard that there is a big drug problem in one local district, and the drug dog is not permitted in the school, because the superintendant refused to allow it. how can the issues be dealt with if everybody chooses to ignore them?

It is sad to see that these school districts feel the need to cover up anything that goes wrong. No school is perfect but it would be nice if they would just admit their faults instead of blaming others or covering them up. This isn't the only incident that has happened in Curwensville regarding something a teacher has done that has been covered up. I believe that there are some teachers there that really care about the kids and how and what they are taught. But, others, I believe are only there for the money and don't give a dang about our kids, only about themselves.
